Top 100 Business Trends in March

From Unlimited Coffee Subscriptions to Smart Warehouse Robots

— March 30, 2020 — Business
These March 2020 business trends range from fully-carbon-neutral flight tests to reusable mug initiatives and showcase how corporations are tackling social and environmental issues responsibly.

One notable example includes a can trading initiative, put forward by BrewDog that allows customers to trade 50 empty beer cans for a share of its business. The Cans for Equity is part of the brand's commitment to "making great beer and ensuring we have a planet to drink it on."

Another intriguing example from the March 2020 business trends is Benzer Pharmac's new drug disposal program, DisposeRx, that allows patients to properly dispose of expired medications from the comfort of their own home. The new program focuses on safety and helps to prevent drug diversion and accidental poisonings.
